Win a Kindle 2 Contest

I’m extending the entry deadline for the “Win a Kindle 2 Contest.” Take note of the word “entry.” The drawing will still be on March 30, but the new deadline to get your correct answer to the qualifying question is March 22.

I am way behind on my emails and point tallies. Travel and my new book got in the way. I’ll plan the next contest much better next time. I’m going to try my hardest to get emails out to everyone by this Sunday.

Here are the details on the contest:

Qualifying Question: What species of nonhuman primate appears in the video?

Important Links:

The video – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3rL6tHwmx4&feature=channel_page

The book: PDF – https://rwridley.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/the-takers-by-rw-ridley.pdf

The book: Paperback – http://www.amazon.com/Takers-Oz-Chronicles-Book/dp/1419609580/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1233599288&sr=1-1

The official Kindle Contest email address is kindlecontest@rwridley.com.

To Qualify – Identify the type of primate in the video (chimpanzee, gorilla or orangutan). If you respond with the correct answer, you will be entered into the drawing. Please send me an email with the subject line “I know the primate.” If this is not the subject line, your answer will not be accepted. In addition, if you earned spread the word bonuses for the last competition and you provide the correct answer to the qualifying question, the spread the word bonuses will rollover to this drawing.

Names – You must provide your first and last name. If you did not enter the last Kindle Drawing please let me know in the email.

How to earn 10 bonus entries – Tell me the name of the character in the book that the primate in the video represents.

How to earn 5 bonus entries – Enter “Never say their name!” in the comment section of the Youtube page (not my blog). Put your first and last initial in comment section to identify yourself. Here’s an example of how it would look if I left a comment: “Never say their name! – RR”. Be sure to let me know in the email that you have entered the comment on Youtube so I can track your bonus points. In addition, make sure I know your initials.

Spread the word bonuses – for each person that sends me an email telling me you told them about the contest, you get a bonus entry. As was done for the last drawing, the people you are telling about the competition should have the subject line “Loop me in on the Kindle Contest” on their emails.

Kindles? – If the video receives 5,000 views, I will be giving away a second Kindle for this drawing. In this case, if you win the first one, you will not be eligible to win the second one.

How to be disqualified – if you give the answer to the qualifying question in any public forum, blog, message board, website and/ or email, I will disqualify you from the competition. How will I know? Trust me, I’ll know. I have found that the entrants themselves have been a great source of information.

Dates – Entries will be accepted until March 15 22. The actually drawing will be on March 30.

New Kindle Drawing

Winner Announced!  Click Here

Time for me to give away another Kindle (maybe two). This drawing is a little different than last time. This time it’s more about the video. I didn’t create the video. It was done by a group in Toronto, Canada. I want to make sure their hard work is seen by as many people as possible. I may be biased, but I love it. As always, no purchase is necessary. Here’s the qualifying question (make sure to read the rules that follow very carefully).

New Kindle Contest

I’m sending out the email today for the new Kindle contest. If you missed the last one, now is your chance. It’s a drawing. It’s fun. It’s free, and best of all, a free Amazon Kindle is at stake. More to come. Keeping watching.

I’ll be posting the rules on this blog a week from today.

Car Wash Attacks & More on the Kindle Contest

On the Kindle contest front. I’m getting a great response, and I appreciate everyone who’s sent an email to kindlecontest@rwridley.com for more details. If you haven’t heard of the contest, all you have to do is send me an email to the aforementioned email address with the subject line “Loop me in on the Kindle contest,” and I’ll send you the rules.  One point of clarification.  Someone wanted to know if I’m giving away the Kindle version of my book or the actual Kindle device.  I’m giving away the Amazon Kindle wireless reading device  (current retail is $359).   Some of you are doing an excellent job with the “Spread the Word Bonus” program. So far, one person has turned 15 people on to the contest. Think you can top it? C’mon, you know you can.  I’ve already given away a couple of signed copies of The Takers, so hurry up and send your friends and family my way to win one of the remaining copies.  In case you forgot or didn’t know, the first ten people to send 10 people my way, I’ll send you a free signed copy of The Takers. 

Thanks to everyone, especially all you fellow bloggers who are helping me spread the word.

Finally, I just thought this was too funny.  Apparently, this car wash hates acid wash jeans and mullets. I’d love to know what their SAT scores were.
